Judd Apatow says they’re just beginning.
The Hollywood sex scandals, that is.
Not the scandals themselves, actually, but the revelations about them.
Apatow, the man behind a variety of popular films, including Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Superbad, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, told the Hollywood news website Deadline in a recent interview that “a lot more” is going to emerge from the cesspool.
“This has been happening since the creation of the movie business—watch the documentary about Marilyn Monroe,” Apatow said. “The old studio heads expected all these women to sleep with them, and some version of that type of abuse continues to this day. It might not be with studio heads, but producers and other actors or actresses. The other day online, someone put up an article from 1945 with Maureen O’Hara complaining about this, in 1945. So, it’s a good thing that it’s being discussed, but there’s a lot more coming.”
“You can feel that it’s just the beginning, because there are a lot of people who’ve been afraid to talk for a long time, and they feel like things are changing, and they can finally come forward,” he added. “And I would assume this is going to happen through the summer.”
You mean these revelations are going to remain a steady stream through next summer? Apparently there IS “a lot more” coming.
How deep does this nasty hole really go? It seems we may finally find out.
